Living high


This is an older house in the historic district. I'm guessing that someone has a room up there and has decorated the small porch at the top of the stairs.

What a well kept home. Must be a nice view from up there but those stairs would kill me. :=]
and thanks for your sympathy re: my taxes.. and if that's the saddest thing you've heard all day, be grateful.. As Peter said, I'm doing my part to support my fellow citizens.. I just hope they appreciate it. LOL

Lovely porch and lovely house. The stairs are a bit out of sync with the general tone, but probably there are safety requirements. Nice catch, I really like these houses.

Reminds me of when I lived in Boston. Most of the Upstairs landings were "individualized" with plants, art, or something to personalize them.

Hilda said...

Maybe s/he's renting? He has his way in and out of the room.

Well spotted, Jacob. And the house looks so neat and pretty!

PJ said...

Someone young lives there, of that I'm certain.

Lois said...

What a cute little porch sitting on top of that bay window! Nice shot!

Missy said...

What a lovely and cute house :-)

Jacob said...

@ PJ - I agree. Can you imagine hauling bags of groceries up those steps, not to say something large and heavy?

Jacob said...

@ Olivier - this is the north side of the house. The entrance is in front. I have a feeling they made a special room for a boarder and built the staircase to reach it so the boarder would not come through the main entrance.

JM said...

The house looks nice and the little balcony is so cool!

Harry said...

Very nice composition!

@ Karen - re: taxes. They are a pain, but at the same time we couldn't live in a community without them, right - they pay for schools, roads, courts, police, firemen, etc.

I don't mind taxes so long as they are fair - and I believe very much in the "graduated income" approach...

I just don't understand the so-called Tea Parties which have nothing to do with the Boston Tea Party (that was about taxation without representation)...unless you make over $250K a year, you'll get a tax cut.

And TARP, the bailouts, etc., were all initiated by the previous administration...

Could it be something else is afoot?

Hope you're having a great day!

Jacob said...

@ Harry - Thanks for stopping by. I just went to your Dutch site and I am very impressed. I'll be back again and again! Superb work!

Great shot, Jacob!

If someone lives up there, they get all the exercise they need going up and down those stairs!
I too wonder what else is afoot.

lovely balcony and baywindow!

Jacob said...

@ Juergen - Did my e-mail go through all right?

Great shot! I like this house and especially the stairs!:)

How nice whoever lives up there has their own entrance.

I don't know if I'd want to carry lots of heavy shopping up those steps! It does look lovely and really well-kept though!

When they advertised it, it probably said "room with a view and private entrance". Looks very cosy.
